Hi all, i haven't been here for a while but i thought i would drop in a line and recant how doing the CattleDrive helped me in the real world. I am currently doing a Masters in IT and this week we are doing Algorithms. Our task was to write an algorithm using pseudocode which performs the following task "Given a string of numbers, identify all of the substrings that form numbers that are divisible by 3. For example, applying the algorithm on the string 37540 should produce the following substrings (not necessarily in this order): 0; 3; 75; 54; 375; 540" I immediatly thought of the strains and struggles of Say4a and Say4b and using what that taught me rattled off a good, condense and viable answer in next to no time. Compared to the rambling code of some of my classmates who haven't had the benefit of nitpicking i felt that i had to come back and give credit where credit is due. Thank you nitpickers, the benefits of CattleDrive spread far and wide One day i might even come back and finish Servlets finally [ March 15, 2003: Message edited by: Sam Tilley ]
